With the 27th pick in the draft, the Bengals select…
Kevin Zeitler, offensive guard, Wisconsin (6-4, 315)
There isn’t too much of a downside with the Zeitler pick. He’s a big, strong Wisconsin offensive lineman who plays hard, understands leverage and can hold up in the pass game. He’s not the most quick-footed or sudden athlete laterally, but when Zeitler gets his hands on defenders, he can lock out. Should start early on for the Bengals.
